"This beer is exactly what the name implies. Hops, hops, hops! Smells great, tastes great, good with their spicy dishes. One of their better beers, and they make some good seasonals."

O tap at the brew pub. Dark copper pour wth a white head. Aroma is resin and slight citrus. A bit of malt. Flavor is resiny grapefruit. Some malt backbone, but not enough or this beer I my opinion. Good offering though.

3oz sample. One of 7 samples tasted while having lunch at the brewpub. I found all 7 to be solid brews and good examples in each of the styles. This one will have you burping up pure hops (and that is a good thing in my book). Overall they had better than average offerings than the majority of brewpubs out there. (actual tasting was on 2/15)

Pint off of tap at the brewery. I will have to agree with beerguy101 pretty much to a T. This is my favorite beer I have had since I moved west from Virginia. Definitely going to get my growler filled constantly until they run out of this batch!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on tap at the 7th Annual Bistro Double IPA fest. This Imperial IPA pours a cloudy medium orange gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is malty and caramel, more sweet than hoppy. A medium bodied 2x IPA. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are citrusy and piney. Nice balance. Big malt backbone. Lots of hop flavors, but not a lot of hop bitterness. It right in that class between an Imperial IPA and a Barleywine. Touch of alcohol bite in the finish. Solid beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth, Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
